Bags you can carry to work that will hold everything

For those of us who can’t just take the ‘bare essentials’

Packing light is great in theory but if your handbags are anything like ours, they’ll be bursting at the seams. From makeup bags and planners to lunch boxes and laptops, some of us just can’t manage to fit everything into a regular handbag. Although we love a classic canvas tote bag, they aren’t always the best protection for our prized possessions, however, we think we’ve found a solution. Notebooks, pencils … welcome to your new home - the large tote bag. If you are looking for a stylish holdall that will ensure you are leaving the house with only one bag and not ten, then we’ve found some really great options that you might like.
